1. Promoting health in premature infants : with special focus on skin-to-skin contact and development of valid pain assesment
Sammanfattning : Premature infants are at greater risk for both short- and long-term negative outcomes than infants born at full term. Premature infants have an immature nervous system and are not developmentally prepared to process the often excessive stimuli and frequent painful procedures of intensive care. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this doctoral thesis was to describe parents' experiences of having an infant born prematurely and experiences on the use of real-time videoconferencing in providing support to parents of preterm born infants at home. A descriptive qualitative method was chosen to achieve the overall goal of this thesis. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The thesis investigates lung function and the effects of rescue surfactant treatment in mechanically ventilated preterm human infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), and the effects of ventilation at birth on the response to surfactant supplementation in preterm lambs. To assess lung function, the author recorded static pressure-volume (P-V) curves during passive deflation from total lung capacity (TLC) to ambient pressure and measured end-expiratory lung volume (FRC) during mechanical ventilation by tracer gas washout.

Sammanfattning : Non-nutritive sucking (NNS) by the newborn infant is a fundamental behaviour and is one of the first coordinated muscular activities in the foetus. A new specially designed computer-based method for automatic analysis of the NNS pattern in neonates has been produced. LÄS MER
5. Premedication for intubation in newborn infants; pain assessment, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
Sammanfattning : Preterm infants undergo intensive care during a vulnerable period with hemodynamic instability and a rapidly developing and immature CNS. Adequate pain management is essential, since pain experience might lead to acute physiological reactions as well as neurological and neuropsychological sequels. LÄS MER
